Ha Ha bevo, I just came over from another forum in which you stated, "avoid doing anything. ever". Lol

I'm always working very diligently to discover the obvious.

Late at night, in a rare Los Angeles rain storm, I once had a driver plow through a red light at 50+ mph with all four of his (completely bald) tires locked, missing me and my bike by maybe half an inch. Because I was sitting on the lane marker rather than in my lane, I lived to write this article."

i never really thought about doing this, but think i'm gonna start.
